Today in class, we:

  1. took your Dracula List 1 vocabulary quiz.
  2. looked at a brief section from the 1931 Universal version of Dracula, starring Bela Lugosi — we considered how the director chose to depart from the novel, and what effect those choices had on the narrative, as well as how film as medium differs from text in the options available for storytelling.
  3. talked about how Dracula as a character has been depicted in the almost 100 years of cinematic portrayal and compared that to the text.
  4. began RG 2 (Dracula Reading Guide – Chapter 2), which is due tomorrow.

Tomorrow we will also be going over List 2, so please make sure to bring your blue books!
